E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2017 (90 VM)
“Limpid, glistening gold. Nectarine, pear and Meyer lemon take on a fennel nuance as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of chalky minerality. Expands and deepens on the long, silky finish, leaving behind a subtle floral quality ration and suppleness. A wine drinkable now with potential for ageing.”
Côtes du Rhône
Guigal’s Côtes du Rhône Blanc both sets and steps outside the standard for the appellation and showcases one of the great secrets of the Guigal family: their specialization in the great white Rhône varieties. While only 8% of the Rhône's production is white, a full 25% of Guigal’s production is white and they are today the single largest producer of whites in the Rhône Valley.
